Danvers police released a brief notice around 7:30 a.m. saying the missing teenager, 14-year-old Philip Chism, was found safely.

No further details were given at that time. He was first reported missing around 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

Contrary to some early news reports and online chatter Wednesday morning, both the missing teen and a homicide investigation at Danvers High are connected, according to District Attorney's office spokesperson Carrie Kimball-Monahan.

A spokesperson for the Danvers police said she couldn't confirm or deny those early reports and that the DA would address those questions at a press conference Wednesday morning at the high school.

That press conference is scheduled for 9 a.m. Kimball-Monahan said there is no threat to public safety at this time. The Danvers Public Schools remain closed.

Danvers Patch will have more details as they become available.
